Spiritual & Biblical Interpretations of Life


In the Glorification process there are two parallel processes by which Jesus Glorified His human body. This is a Description of How Jesus became Divine Truth in the Glorification Process. (I will do one for the process for the process of how He became divine love later. It is my sense folks don’t like posts that are too long. There is much to it but I will explicate it as concisely as I can.) This process is very significant to understand for it gives a profound key to understanding what is happening in the Gospels.

Jesus became divine truth by fulfilling all prophecy written about Him in the Bible. When Jesus declares in the synagogue the words, ‘This day the scriptures are fulfilled’, we realize that He is the fulfillment of the prophesies about the Messiah. It is an extraordinary moment that is the culmination of centuries of prophecy and preparation. The Word is divine truth in the Bible from God, and, Jesus is divine truth embodied, and they came into convergence and ultimately perfect union.

The divine truth originates in the Holy of the Lord in heaven; there, it is in its internal purity. In the Bible it has been accommodated down to earth and to humans by discreet degrees. It manifests on earth in the form of the published Bible through revelation given to the prophets and disciples, (Swedenborg writes that this was mostly done by divine dictation). In the Bible of the Old Testament it is prophesied (over 300 times in one way or another) that the Messiah will come and He will accomplish deeds that will redeem and save all humanity. (These prophecies are divine truth for what comes from the will of God is by nature divine and eternal). The Lord came into the world and throughout His life lived all that was prophesied about him. Thus He fulfilled and embodied divine truth from beginning to end, and thus fully became the whole of divine truth. He did this by fulfilling each and every prophecy to the last one, which took place on the cross. This is why He is the LIVING Word; He lived it, He embodied it, and He became it. This is not a metaphor, but a historical accomplishment that was centuries and centuries in the making. It is a work that only the divine Human could perform. For as said, what the divine will professes always comes into being, no matter how long it may be.

We can understand this from a truth we have all heard in common language: ‘A man or women becomes what they do’. We become what we believe, will, and do. This is because our soul is composed of our will and understanding. When we are stripped away of all the externals, as we will be when we die, we are left with what we really love and believe, and this is what forms our internal soul. Jesus fulfilled all the prophecies which are divine truth, therefore He became divine truth.

Here is another important way to look at this: by being born in the natural world of earth Jesus had an external and internal, which is the situation of all humans who are born. By progressively fulfilling all prophecy in the Word to the end, He brought the external (His body) and His internal (His soul) into perfect union, known as the Holy marriage between His divine essence and human. In the resurrection there was no more separation, but the Holy Union! His physical body became divine, for that which merges with the divine is divine, and there is only one divine. When you break metal in two, and then weld it back together, the weld becomes the strongest part. His presence and power were upgraded by the crucible of the glorification process exponentially. He became what He did, and what He did in his life is fulfill the prophecies. Praise God!
